Fall is in the Air

Fall is in the air! It's October and temperatures here in Louisiana are already dropping. I was curled up in bed with an extra blanket, turning off my fan, and even tucking my head away. Yep, Fall is certainly here. I love it!

What's your favorite season?

We are pulling out the seasonal smelling candle waxes to melt, not that we didn't melt them before, but now it feels more authentic, ya know?

What is your favorite Wax Melt?

This season also put me in the mood to cook-more like bake! Just something about this time of year gets me pumped! Surely, I am not the only one? I have already cooked Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies, Pecan Bars, and Cherry/strawberry Kuchen Bars. Each day something different and amazingly enough each day it gets finished. Haha got to love family. I wouldn't be able to eat all this on my own.

What do you love to cook or eat during Fall?

With Fall here I know the end of the year is really close. I mean, I can almost see it! We are just three months away from 2016 and I think that's scary. I swear this year just started the day before yesterday, but apparently I'm wrong-don't tell my husband. Anyway, it's time to get ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas, wrap up all the little things you've been putting off all year long, and take some time to reflect upon this year and think about the next. But I'm just going to take this one step at a time, right now I am going to focus on tying up lose ends.

One thing I want to finish is my reading. I have a Goodreads reading challenge and as of right now it is 17 of 52. Yeah, that is a huge difference. I am far from my end year goal and it isn't look pretty. So I am going to focus on reaching 25. I can at least do that. That is 8 more books! 8! I know so many people in their sleep who could do that, but that is other people. You should really never compare yourself to someone else. Go at your own pace, my husband always says. So 3 months, 8 books! I can do this!!

What book have you read lately?

Another goal is to finish and name the next book in the Pulse World Series! I am currently on writing page 245. I don't know why I can't just write a short story? Nooooo it has to be over 200 pages. Haha But I know I love to read a longer book so I bet plenty of y'all love it too. You're welcome. Once the final word is written and I send it to the amazing ladies that have become my editors and mean critiques I hope the name will make an appearance. I will keep y'all posted.

And if any one is wondering I am still working out, just doing it a little differently now. I will post about it later.

Enjoy the cooler weather while it last, I know I will.
